Heuer Bundeswehr 1550 SG 43mm Valjoux 230 Flyback Military Chronograph AssignedHeuer
For auction is a 1970s Heuer Bundeswehr 1550 SG military assigned tritium 43mm Valjoux 230 flyback chronograph. A rare example with the Bundeswehr caseback engraving it is just an incredibly excellent design that still wears like a modern watch with its oversized 43mm case. One of the all time great vintage Heuer watches it is actually a bargain as compared to other vintage Heuer and the irony is you get more for less: more watch, more complication, military association. This particular 1550 is really nice; dial shows excellent patina and the case has moderate wear but it is a knockout on the wrist and in person.
